Fried Gyoza (Japanese Pot Stickers) with dipping sauce.Pot Stickers

Heat sesame oil in a large skillet or wok over medium high heat; add cabbage, onion, garlic and carrot. Cook and stir until cabbage is soft. Add ground pork, beaten egg, ginger and soy sauce; cook until pork is browned. Drain. Reheat skillet or wok over medium-high heat; add vegetable oil. Place the skins or wrappers on a flat cutting board; run water around the edges. Place approximately one tablespoon of cabbage-pork mixture in the center of each skin or wrapper; fold in half over filling and gently pleat edges with a water-moistened fork. Add Gyoza to hot oil in skillet or wok; cook about one minute on each side or until lightly browned. Place water into skillet or wok; reduce heat. Cover and allow Gyoza to steam-cook until water evaporates. Remove Gyoza from skillet or wok with a slotted spoon; allow to cool slightly before serving with dipping sauce (recipe follows).


Sauce for Gyoza:

Heat all ingredients in a small saucepan; simmer until warmed. Serve with Gyoza as a dipping sauce.


Cooking Variations: As alternatives to pan-frying (guotie), Gyoza can be boiled (shuijiao) similar to broth dumplings or steam-cooked (zhengjiao).
